Down County Line



Metal wheels on steel it's the Mayfly
Heading out going south doing fine
Big ol' lamp looking for you I know why
Got a grudge gotta chug to get it right
Hear the train whistle howl in the evening
Hold on tight don't let go down county line

Tallahassee on up Chattanooga way
Cut the brakes got a stake in Caroline
Mountain pasture pass by now I know I don't know why
Got a grudge gotta chug to get it right
Hear the train whistle howwl in my dull mind
Hold on tight don't let go here comes the mainline

Over land intersection red light
Blur the trees towns and terrestrial time
Just can't stop til we make it to Orlando town
Got a grudge gotta chug to get it right

   In my sorrow I will stop and I will laugh 
     and I will say that I was wrong
   But in the morrow I will hold my head up straight 
     and fucking know that I belong

Metal wheels on steel it's the Mayfly
Heading out going south doing fine
Big ol' lamp looking for you I know why
Got a grudge gotta chug to get it right
Hear the train whistle howl in the evening
Hold on tight don't let go down county line
 Hold on tight don't let go down county line
  Hold on tight don't let go down county line
